Wasn't expecting much from this hotel. Just the standard room and TV but we found all the staff were very nice and extremely helpful. Location isn't ideal, but we had a good time. Food was good too and the all you can eat breakfast.

This hotel was good, it was child friendly. My daughter was happy that it had a tv. It was really close to Waterford city, about 10 minutes drive. Although there is no pool in the hotel, guests can use one at a nearby hotel, ask at reception. The breakfast is buffet and is nice. It didn't finish until 11 on... More

Arrived at hotel at 8.55 pm after delayed and stormy journey from Holyhead. The nice young man at reception could find no trace of our booking which I had made over the net. Fortunately I had printed off a copy so the matter was resolved quite quickly. Normally they stop serving food at 9 pm but he offered to keep... More

Stayed here twice in March, first for two nights then for one a couple of weeks later for work reasons. Unusual location, surrounded by car showrooms and quite a bit outside the town. Handy for me for where I was going but would not think it very handy for visiting the town. Rooms were clean and comfortable (no complaints although... More

Room provided completely inadequate. Totally understaffed to manage the crowd. Food not available on time. Tables not cleared. Relied on kids parents to distribute the food. Delays on tea, coffe and milk. Basic food ok. Would not recommend to any other large groups.

Reasonably priced and very comfortable hotel on the outer edge of Waterford. Sitting among all the car dealerships, on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Waterford, it is not in an attractive setting, but the hotel is warm and the rooms comfortable. Good, free, WiFi. It is a car drive to the city centre. They give a free pass... More

Stayed at this hotel recently and had a very comfortable peaceful nights sleep. Room is clean and spacious but I did not like the large open space wardrobe for your clothing and baggage.. Good size bathroom with bath and excellent shower..satellite tv which was a welcome to the basics usually offered. Would I stay at this hotel again when visiting... More

We stayed in The Viking for 2 nights on a weekend break. Initial thoughts were that it is in a very strange location, being on a road packed with car showrooms and a good 10 minute drive to the city centre and tourist areas. Check in was very friendly and the room was spotlessly clean with a large double bed... More
